2)   2)Describe the various ways that water is used as an ecosystem service. How do these uses impact ecosystem function?  Provide examples.

3)   3)Discuss examples of soil loss and their causes.  How can these be tied to population transitions in human civilizations?

Is this a constant process or have there been periods with larger changes? What has the role of technology played in different population transitions?

5)   5)If births (b) are influenced by population density (N) such that b = bo – N, and deaths (d) by d = do + N rewrite the equation for population change

 

dN/dt = (b=d) N

 

as a logistic equation

 

dN/dt = r N (1 – N/K).

 

What are the r and K terms in terms of the  bs and ds?

 

6) The current turmoil in the Middle East is causing sharp transitions in populations and a great deal of environmental damage. Summarize the recent history of these events and the social economic problems behind them. Include an explicit discussion of demographics of the situation.

9) Write an introduction to the ecology of your home town or some other location that attracts your interest. This is something you can build on by adding other factors such as soil, water, forests….  Begin by documenting the region, its general climate, the population and their demographics.

10) Produce a summary of the issues involved with the water problems in Flint, Michigan.

11) Describe the issues with land ownership that lead to the standoff in the Oregon Wildlife Refuge earlier this year. Document the consequences from as many points of view that you can find.
